feel your pain too. across the critical battleground state of ohio, mitt romney has been a man on a mission to connect with voters. >> my heart aches for the people i've seen. >> reporter: the message of the day was not only that he can fix the economy, it's that he can feel it. >> there are so many in our country that are hurting right now. i want to help them. i know what it takes to get an economy going again and creating jobs. >> reporter: the straight from the heart appeal is echoed in a new ad that shows romney looking directly into the camera. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. >> reporter: translation, pay no attention to the man in that hidden camera video. >> the 47% who are with him, who are dependent on government very much -- >> reporter: but for romney when it rains it pours. his two-day under steady showers has a feel of a race against time. a new poll quinnipiac finds romney trailing the president by ten points in ohio, nine points in florida and 12 in pennsylva
key battleground stat states. topping our political headlines, mitt romney going after president obama on foreign policy today. in his weekly podcast, romney said the president is fumbling his response to events in the middle east. >> this week, when president obama was asked about the recent disruption and chaos and violence in the middle east, he said that these were merely bumps in the road. that casual assessment of shocking events reveals that the president really doesn't understand the gravity of the challenges that we face in the broader middle east. >> meanwhile, the obama campaign is out with a new ad, it takes aim at romney's experience at bain capital, spotlighting workers who said they lost their jobs because governor romney was more concerned about short-term profits than creating jobs. >> people need to know what mitt romney did to miriam, indiana, in 1994. >> you don't just come in and take everything everybody's got and destroy a business. i mean, that's what they did. >> when you take away all the good-paying jobs such as we had here at gst steel in kansas city, the mi
in the battleground states. >>> mitt romney could make a huge impact on the supreme court. how he could change the direction of the court for decades. >>> they make $10 a day to put their lives on the line. but they could lose their job ifs they don't lose some weight. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're now just 36 days from the presidential election and nationally our brand-new cnn/orc poll of likely voters shows the race between president obama and governor romney remaining up for grabs. the president leads 50% to 47%. but his three-point margin is within the poll's sampling error. our chief national correspondent john king is in denver getting ready for the debate over there. that's the site of the debate. john, take us into these numbers. what are you seeing? >> reporter: well, wolf, i can tell you this, talking to senior officials in the romney campaign, they believe after a tough week or ten days, the last several days, they have a little bit of a breeze at their back. they say the race has stabilized. you dig into the numbers. what is the most important issue in
it in those swing states. and that's because mitt romney played defense a lot of the first half of this year. whether it was in the primaries or in may, when the primary was finally over, and the obama campaign really started to hit him hard on his bain record. there hasn't an opening or an effective way for him to articulate a vision to turning the economy around. and it shows in the poll numbers. >> lynn, if governor romney can't hang this economy over the president's neck in the next three or four weeks, is there a chance he can beat him? >> of course there is one big blooper from obama, and the mistake may certainly change the trajectory of the campaign. but garrett made a very good point. i want to quickly build on another reason why obama might have dealt with housing today. he's doing his debate prep in a suburb of las vegas. where is he now that it's hard hit? so, again, this is another reason -- a reason he's camped out there, deliberately, so to try to bolster his support in nevada. and again, i think he's just prophylactically building a community around himself, dealing with hous
said. it does come down to the different states and the problem for romney is the number of states where they have a ground game that can really capitalize seems to be diminishing. take a listen to this. >> florida still matters big and if somehow the president wins it it's check mate. no path without florida and for mitt romney there's no path if he's going to crede ohio, that's what's going on, the move of ohio, where romney cannot seem to connect with white working-class voters, doing this bus trip but the move of ohio that suddenly means he's got to win florida and virginia. >> joan walsh, you've written about the white working-class vote. the numbers don't bear out the places where romney was supposed to have an advantage are not coming together for him. >> right. i think that what we've seen this week is he's really in trouble in ohio he's really in trouble in florida. he cannot lose both those states. and paul ryan brought nothing to the ticket except fear. we have a situation where white seniors are afraid of medicare, their message that we're going to protect it did not ge
and romney both in the same state again today, hammering each other on jobs. but why does newt gingrich call romney's campaign a messaging failure? >>> and it is one of the most famous cold cases in history. where jimmy hoffa's body? well, a new break in the case this morning has police ready to start drilling. >>> it's thursday, september 27th. "starting point" begins right now. >>> our starting point this morning, the blown call that outraged millions. it seems to have single handedly settled a labor dispute. that's right. the official nfl refs are headed back to the field. beginning tonight, millions of football fans will again be able to sleep and rest easy. they will be able to curse and boo the real refs again, finally, for the ravens/browns game tonight. and calmed by the knowledge they won't have to see another replacement official for at least eight years, because that's how long the new labor deal will last. jason carroll, i know you're excited. he joins us live to talk about how they reached this deal while we were all sleeping. >> you seem more excited. did you see how excited he
reagan got 49 states. blaming everything else but where the blame lies. and that is mitt romney and his horrible campaign. peggy noonan was right. you know, these idiots blast people like peggy noonan, these idiots blast people like "the wall street journal." these idiots blast people like laura ingram. why aren't you a loyal republican? well, i think a loyal republican says the house is on fire. and time's running out. if we want to save this house, we'd better do it now. i tried that a couple of weeks ago. guess what? time's running out. you know when early voting starts in ohio? less than a week. >> 26 states have already started voting. >> 26 states have already started early voting. in ohio where we're going to show some polls this morning that show just how horribly mitt romney's doing in ohio. you know what? i was saying last week there are 45 days. there aren't really 45 days left. they've got to turn this thing around or they lose. this is what jason riley wrote in "the wall street journal" yesterday. media blame game. this from a conservative publication, by the way, extreme r
romney the next president of the united states, wolf. i have a strong sense this will be brought up at tomorrow night's debate, wolf. >> we'll have a lot more on what joe biden has just said and the very tough reaction coming in from the romney campaign. gloria borger is standing by on that front. both of these campaigns are bringing major surrogates to denver to appear in the so-called spin room after the debate tomorrow night. what are you learning about the romney campaign's people who are coming in? >> reporter: wolf, it's probably no surprise rob portman, mitt romney's chief sparring partner playing barack obama in the debate, he'll be in the spin room. but we've also learned that marco rubio, the rising star, senator from florida who had a prominent role at the republican convention, he will also be in the room. it's interesting to note this comes just as mitt romney's making some new gestures in some outreach, you could say, to the latino community. notable he will be there as well. >> very interesting. thanks very, very much, jim acosta in littleton, colorado. >>> all right.
day in ohio. presidt obama heads to the state this moing. tos ys"s reporting that aides to romney say the republican candidate and running mate paul ryan will be campaigning together more often in the coming weeks, according to the report. the move underscores concerns that mr. romney is not generating enough excitement on his n and needs mr. ryan to re u srt that may have been evident during a campaign stop yesterday outside dayton. >> wow! that's quite aguy, isn't it paul an isthomething? wait a second. wait a second. romney, ryan! romney, ryan! romney, ryan! there we go. all right. that's great. thank yo >> oh. sweet jesus. i'm sorry. m soy. shouldn't be so hard on you. i shouldn't bring up newt gingrich. >> it's just irrelevant. >> it doesn't even matter. >> it's irrelevant. what do the catholics say? holy mary mother of god? >> it's not going to work. >>ra f o sinners in thy hour of peace. >> it's not going to work. it's too late for that. >> it seems to me -- except what would happen, it's the end of "godfather 2," i'm fredo on the back of the boat about to get it in the bac of
romney appear to be on the same page. >> that the president of the united states must make a priority of helping reduce demand in this country. >> the united states can focus on drug treatment and prevention. >> absolutely. i agree with that. >> reporter: if anyone should know, it's judge giselle pollack. she presides over drug court in broward county, florida. the idea, get clean, you may not a perfect record. pollack says drug courts ought to be a priority for the candidates, because they reduce drug dependency and save taxpayers millions. &she's g and she's got the numbers to back it up. a study showed pollack's court saved the county as much as $30 million a year over a five-year period. basically, the difference in the cost of treatment and counseling versus incarceration. >> if we can keep them out of the critical justice system at this level, then we will save billions and billions in prison costs. >> reporter: for the white house, it's a multi-layered approach. focus on education and prevention, treat drugs and addiction as a public health issue, not just a criminal justice co
in ohio, president obama and mitt romney campaigned today in another key battle groun state, we're talking about virginia. meantime, early voting begins today in iowa, another swing state. president obama hoping to keep his edge in the swing states with a new ad released just this morning. >> it's time for a new economic patriotism, rooted in the belief that growing our economy starting with a strong, thriving middle class. read my plan. compare it to governor romney's and decide for yourself. >> cnn political editor paul steinhauser leave in our washington bureau. paul, good to see you. good morning. let's talk about virginia. we know that president obama has the edge, the question is by how much. >> let's take a look at this. here's our cnn poll of polls, alina. we take the most recent, nonpartisan surveys, average them together, and here's where it stands in virginia when you add all those polls together and you can see the president with an advantage there, six points. it's a similar advantage to the other battleground states like ohio where he was yesterday, where both men were yester
of the swing states that will decide the presidential election. well, here is mitt romney, we have heard these words before, sounds as though he's downplaying expectations as they say. take a listen. >> people want to know who is going to win, who is going to score the punches and who is going to make the biggest difference in the arguments they make and there is going to be all the scoring of winning and losing. >> so romney is saying, no, it is not about winning, not about losing, it is about america. but you have a lot of republicans, newt gingrich, for example, saying, hey, mitt romney, get out there, pick a fight, and win it. jim acosta with me now from the romney campaign. the debate, of course, tomorrow night in denver, you, sir, are in littleton, colorado. should we take mitt romney at face value when he says this debate is not about me winning? >> reporter: well, brooke, i think this is all part of the debate expectations game that has been going on for several days now. i think you also sort of heard mitt romney downplay some of the talk that has been going on since the new yor
. the president is showing an advantage over mr. romney in most of the battleground states. many think by virtue of his appearance on the stage face to face with the president, that will elevate mr. romney. 5,000-plus people here when he arrived. he's looking for an opportunity to reframe the debate as he has been saying on the campaign trail, the choice between the obama dependency society and what he calls the free enterprise individual liberty and personal responsibility. >> we'll get to describe our respective views and i believe people of colorado will choose a better way forward for our country. we can't afford four more years like the last four years. >> reporter: today mr. romney is behind closed doors. we haven't been told whether this will be one of his more informal discussions with his aids work on what mr. romney calls his zingers or whether it will be a mock debate with senator rob portman who has been shadow boxing with mr. romney more weeks now. in the expectations game the obama campaign has seeds on romney's prook is time and the fact that he had 20 debates in the primaries to
states, that was a state that was supposed to be the relatively easy gift for romney. there's a one or two-point race in north carolina on october 1st. they're facing an uphill slide across the board and they know it. >> by the way, you can't run 30-second ads in enough places to do this. if you're going to win, if you're going to turn things around, i'll say the quote that drives liberals crazy, a rising tide lifts all boats, this first debate on wednesday, it's got to shock the campaign back to life. because if romney does well, you're not going to be able to buy enough ads to do what a great performance by mitt romney would do on wednesday night. that would tighten it in ohio. it would tighten it in north carolina. probably go ahead in north carolina. it would tie it in iowa, probably tie it up in iowa. that's why you can't buy your way out of this mess the romney campaign is in right now, but you can outdebate them. >> more than anything else what seemed to have happened in august was democrats got enthused by their convention more than republicans did. the latest polling shows
the state, day after day, about how the economy there is really growing and booming. and romney doesn't necessarily, you know, say the same thing. it's kind of mixed messages. and he also hasn't come up with a really strong, coherent response, to the auto bailout. he says let detroit go bankrupt. there's a supply chain, you know, a lot of manufacturers in ohio. the obama campaign talks about this day after day after day after day and romney campaign doesn't really have much of an answer for it. romney's going to ohio after his new york visit to join up with paul ryan for a bus tour. they know how important it is and they definitely have some work to do, john. >> all right. thank you, peter hamby in washington. the romney ohio bus tour begins today. thanks very much. >>> 35 minutes past the hour. the fbi will investigate the controversial shooting death of a disabled man. this was by police in houston. on saturday, officers were called to a group home for mentally ill people. responding to reports that a wheelchair-bound resident was acting aggressively. police say the double amputee a
. governor romney had said at i have an opportunity to save the state a lot of money, because if we did not take the federal money, it would have gone away, we would not have access to it anymore. with health care reform, we are able to accept this large sum of money and free some of the cost of providing care for people who don't have health insurance. host: we're learning about the health care law that governor romney signed into law in massachusetts with the reports from the boston herald christine mcconvillechristine. she's been with the herald five years. she also reported for the boston globe before that. we have a phone line set up especially for massachusetts residents. and republicans and democrats can call us as well as independent scholars. -- callers. let's look at some details of how the health care law has played out. 98% of adults are now covered. nearly 100% of children are covered. insurance premiums have about $70.veby take us through how this plan has worked out. guest: most people would tell you the effort to get people insured has worked out astoundingly well. the s
will have a sense as to who can be the better leader for the united states. and mitt romney has to come across as, well, he can do a better job leading the united states on domestic policies. so it's an impression that the viewer will get overall. it will be the zingers. but it will be really the impression. who can create the better impression of leadership and that person will win the debate. >> i must say, it was really something to hear some anonymous spokesperson say that governor romney had been rehearsing the spontaneous moments that they were going to do. >> i'm sure he's not the first politician -- let me ask congressman poe, do politicians do that in general ? i have to imagine all politicians rehearse the spontaneous moments. am i right or am i wrong? >> yes, of course. i think most people in a speech have a one-liner, so to speak. they wait for the right time to use the one-liner. you never know when it'll come up. >> congressman, a thought here. mitt romney spent two years making the case against president obama's first term. three days of a national convention and acceptan
believe that government has a responsibility to care for them? >> of course not. i agree with mitt romney when he says his comments were poorly phrased. keefe said they were in elegantly stated. i think there is a difference. part of the philosophy of president obama is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so that the democrats can stay in power in perpetuity. the reason i think that is failing is, even those americans, if you break down that 47%, there is a significant chunk of people, receiving social security, who have paid into it their entire life. that is very different from being dependent on welfare. that is a critical safety net our society has counted on that we need to insure remain strong for generations to come. even those who are receiving welfare right now, most americans do not want to stay dependent on government. they want to work for the american dream. they want to work to provide for themselves and their families. i think that is why the obama administration's objective is essentially using bread and circuses to make as many people as po
industry. the interest of agriculture and the united states are aligned and i am appalled that neither governor romney or president obama is talking about agriculture in this campaign. it is an important part, a foundation of the u.s. economy. ethanol, i fought for ethanol since i was governor. it has lowered the price of fuel. it is created tens of thousands of jobs. i was in blair last week, a great example of bipartisan effort. there is a new dcompany with a hundred jobs. is is not a failure. this is not a threat to our economy. the interest of agriculture and the united states are completely in alignment. there's no need to choose. >> senator fischer? >> i grew up in lincoln. my husband and i have been married for 40 years. agriculture is important to the state. what is important is that we always work together as a state. is urban and rural interests, and because of agriculture, it is important to the state of nebraska a. one entry jobs is dependent on the agriculture economy. people across nebraska realize and understand that. we need to keep in mind, a balancing act. we have don
: the president is gripping on to a small lead in the swing states, including iowa, where a new poll shows mitt romney trailing by four points. analysts say romney needs to change the trajectory of the race. but his running mate, paul ryan insists, he's not concerned, even while acknowledging campaign mistakes. >> we've had some miss steps, but at the end of the day, the choice is really clear and we're giving people a clear choice. >> governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> reporter: for days, both sides have been tamping down debate expectations. >> we expected all along that governor romney will have a good night. he's prepared more than any candidate in history. and he's shown himself to be a very, very good debater through the years. >> sometimes we expect a major break through. you know, the comment that doesn't happen very often. >> reporter: new jersey governor chris christie predicted romney would do extremely well and turn the race upside down. >> thursday morning, the entire narrative of this race is going to change. >> reporter: and if the president is trying to avoi

.s.." this is the former ambassador to the u.n. and another advisor to governor romney. i say this not to make a partisan statement here but to say that it's different. we spent years in the bush years talking about an imperial role for the united states. empire means you have a power above the rules. they make rules for everybody else. that is just not what that view is in my view. with a united states that can solve its domestic problems and recapture a sense that it is an example worth emulating that there is, although they are not nearly as strong as we would like them to become a health and strength in a multinational system. >> to talk a lot about continuity. -- you talk a lot about continuity. if you set aside the past 50 years, the longest extended a continuous strain in u.s.- international outlook was isolationism. it was looking after our own problems, staying out of it, taking advantage of the fact that the atlantic and the pacific immunize us against being involved on the other side of the world. do you worry that there is an impulse within the far right, and to some degree in the far left go
